Although, it's a bittersweet announcement, Internet radio stations have 30 days to appeal the board’s decision in federal court. Will this be the end of the road for small net radio operators who have vowed to appeal the higher royalty payments?

"plug-in" for AMD a possiblity....

Any sort of ball-park figure any1 care to throw out on the pricing on one of `these` - if they came to fruition.

In excess of a physX card ? I have no idea.

I would imagine that they would be considerably more than a physX card. They are targeted at Enterprise after all :) I haven't seen any prices as yet

That little beauty of an add-in will probably cost $1500+ I would reckon.
